The Independent Critics List of 100 Most Beautiful & Handsome Faces Of 2017 | Photographers Should Take Note
Beauty lays in the eye of the beholder. Well, that’s how the old adage goes anyway, but certainly in some ways it’s flat out wrong. Beauty, it can be argued, can be quantified and therefore artificially synthesized. Not that this should come as any surprise; Everyone finds a 1960s Ferrari more beautiful than a ’94 Corolla, and Barbara Palvin more beautiful than the Donald, for example.
“What is beauty then?” you might ask. You would, however, be asking the wrong question. As with style, it’s less ‘what is it?’ and more, ‘what is it made of?’ It’s an anthology of traits, a whiskey of many spirits.
And that’s sort of the concept and approach behind The Independent Critics List by TC Chandler’s annual list of The Most Beautiful Faces Of 2017.
The list has been annually published since 1990, and from its beginnings as a small collegiate project has become something of a global internet phenomenon. According to their site the list has been seen by a quarter of a billion people and widely considered the most internationally recognized of its kind. So popular in fact, that there’s now a second list for The Most Handsome Faces, with men.
What’s perhaps most interesting about these lists is that they’re not strictly American or Euro-centric, and that makes for a very interesting spread of people and looks, and as time goes on it gets even more diverse. Just take a look at how the list has changed over the past 20 years:
Worth noting too, however, is that the lists aren’t composed solely of people who already grace the cover of western magazines, but in fact many faces you not know at all, and many of those have gone on to become sensations in their own right. Consider Thylane Blondeau and the recognition and success she’s gone on to have from her initial success as a child model of some obscurity. That is all to say the lists do seem to reflect the direction of global tastes in aesthetics.
This year’s list, however, is probably the most unusual of all, as it celebrates different looks more than any in the past. In fact, those of Asian and mixed-Asian descent have dominated the 2017 list, and for many that’s a welcomed embracing of the times.
Whatever you or I may think of this and whether we agree with the choices is sort of irrelevant, because it’s not so much the individuals that matter. It’s important for photographers to take note (especially in the West) because it shows how much the world is changing and how important diversity in look and subject is.
One hopes that this will encourage more photographers, MUAs, brands, stylists and so on to be more inclusive, and that can only spell good things for us all; more tolerance, acceptance, equal opportunity et cetera. I mean, we’ll certainly get more interesting imagery, and really, in this day and age of globalization you have to ask yourself: Aside from the fact that despite the calls for isolationism by many in the United States, can you afford not to embrace diversity?

ABOUT US | THE INDEPENDENT CRITICS LISTS by TC Candler
The world famous 100 MOST BEAUTIFUL FACES LIST has been published annually by TC CANDLER & THE INDEPENDENT CRITICS since 1990. What originally started off as a small project has grown into a yearly internet phenomenon. Over the past 30 years, the list has been seen by hundreds of millions of people from around the world. It is widely considered to be the most internationally recognized and prestigious list of its kind. Its viewership is far greater than People Magazine, Esquire, AskMen, Maxim, FHM and any other internet beauty list COMBINED! The annual lists have been acknowledged / personally thanked by over 400 celebs that have been included over the years.
Unlike most other annual beauty rankings, The List is not popularity contest and is most definitely not country specific. It is not about the sexiest body or the most famous celebrity. Rather, the list attempts to inform & broaden public opinion instead of reflecting it. You will find superstars and new stars, global sensations and relative unknowns.
The Independent Critics are a diverse group of approximately 20 people living in various parts of the world, organized by TC Candler, who search far and wide, listening to the many millions of suggestions submitted by the public over the past couple of decades, and they then put together a list representative of the modern ideal of worldwide beauty.
Aesthetic perfection is only one of the criteria. Grace, elegance, originality, daring, passion, class, poise, joy, promise, hope… they are all embodied in a beautiful face. With those criteria in mind, TC Candler and the members select only 100 faces out of the approximately 105,000 female celebrities (which works out to less than 0.0010%). It is a thankless task, as no individual will ever agree with all of the choices. However, the general consensus has been that the Independent Critics have created a celebratory list that cherishes the feminine aesthetic and opens the world’s eyes to a unique, diverse and international collection of beautiful faces.
Over 40 countries are regularly represented on the annual list. That number seems to go up every year as the public participation grows and expands. This diversity relies heavily on suggestions from almost every corner of the globe. When the list first began in the early 1990’s, it was comprised mostly of American, British and Australian stars. Only the most famous international cross-over stars would have been recognizable enough to merit consideration. However, as the years have passed, The Lists have been heavily influenced by the rise of international modeling, worldwide cinema, K-Pop, Bollywood, global television, internet personalities etc. It is now the most diverse and inclusive beauty list you will ever find.
In addition, due to overwhelming public demand, TC Candler also created a 100 MOST HANDSOME FACES LIST. While it has only been going since 2013, it has already become almost as popular as the Beautiful Faces List.
Feel free to comment with your suggestions or opinions. Originality is most welcome! Have your favorite name be heard! Of course, lists are always very subjective… you will disagree with some of the choices, but perhaps you will find a new favorite. We hope you enjoy the list. Watch the video and please comment. Who did you discover? Who did we miss?
From Helen of Troy to Cleopatra to Hedy Lamarr to Rita Hayworth, to Marilyn Monroe to Grace Kelly… these are THE LEGENDS OF OUR TIME!
TC Candler is the creator of the Annual Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of the Year. He was born in London, England — but has lived in various parts of the United States (Los Angeles, Minneapolis & Las Vegas) since the mid-1980′s. He graduated university in 1997 with a degree in English.
Candler had always been a prominent writer / creator on the internet since its early years. After university, he went on to create one of the more successful movie review websites of the late 1990′s. At its peak, the site was receiving at least a quarter of a million unique visitors a month. Eventually, he teamed up with a few other critics to form another website devoted to movie reviews, celebrity interviews and opinionated columns. It was also a huge success for over three years — ranking as one of the most popular movie sites on the net between 2005 and 2008.
TC was also the lead writer and editor of Coming Soon Magazine — a London based monthly publication under the banner of The Independent Newspaper. At its peak, Candler was drawing well over 100,000 readers on a weekly basis.
He currently splits his time between Las Vegas and the beautiful island of Barbados – where he devotes much of his time to THE INDEPENDENT CRITICS LISTS and the search for THE 100 MOST BEAUTIFUL & HANDSOME FACES of the year. Not a bad job, if you can get it!
